The planning application is due to be heard in January. The local CRAG group have collected 5,000 signatures on their petition against this plan to extract coal from a 40-year-old slag heap at Hesley Wood. Unfortunately because it is a planning application it can’t be discussed in Council. SCACC are investigating the possibility of putting a motion at December’s Council meeting opposing Extreme Energy. This includes Fracking and the RecyCoal application.
